Kevin O'Malley

Urban Innovation Specialist

I’ve spent the last twenty years looking at how innovation can make cities more resilient, efficient, prosperous and liveable.

About Me

Ex-pat Geordie and Recovering Archaeologist.

I’m an Innovation Lead in the Urban Systems Team at Innovate UK. I also provide specialist help and support to Local Authorities in using the pre-commercial procurement instrument SBRI

Before joining Innovate UK I was City Innovation Team Manager at Bristol City Council, leading the delivery of the Authorities award winning Smart City programme.

I have a Masters degree in IT Usability, but started my academic life as a Archaeologist. I’ve always been fascinated by understanding how technology and innovations transform societies.
